in houston, texas. we're going to keep our eye on those live pictures. he'll be offering rebuttal to romney's speech he made yesterday. despite rounds of applause throughout romney's speech, the crowd did boo after romney said he would repeal the president's health care reform law. romney reacted last night during a fundraiser in montana saying "remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy but don't forget nothing is free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services." joining me now, we have two people on our panel. i want to start here with democratic strategist steve mcmahon. the president doesn't have any events these two days. i'd like to get to the reaction of thefr freeh statement. despite the president not having events for today and yesterday, he had some schedule conflicts. how will convention goers see this joe biden being there instead of the president? >> the convention goers fully understand that the obama administration is the best friend they ever had in washington. and joe biden is a

experience. >> i want to bring in nbc latino contributor and fellow at the university of texas victoria soto and former newt gingrich spokesman rick tiler. good morning to both of you. >> goo todd morning. >> mitt romney didn't say anything in this interview and to be fair they didn't ask about the timing of when he was at baines. "the new york times" headline reads, and this is really where a lot of us are getting caught in this, in tracing romney's role at bain, a convoluted time line. is that part of the problem, victoria, for mitt romney? maybe there is no straightforward answer? >> what's so interesting to me is this partisan role reversal we've seen where it's the democrats on the attack and the republicans not really know wag to do. this is a page out of the rove playbook. you attack your opponent on what they think is their strongest suit. they're coming after them, much like we saw with john kerry in 2004 in going after his military service. the question here is what is the romney campaign going to do? do they answer? do they keep hoping it goes away? we're seeing that he wants it t
... bloomington, california... austin, texas... we are all here to represent the country we love this is for everyone back home it's go time. across america, we're all committed to team usa. >> to politics where president obama wants to put away the latino vote. the obama campaign spent $2 million on spanish language ads since april on top of the super pac's $4 million. compare that to $110,000 that the romney campaign spent so far. this starts the romney family's annual vacation dubbed the romney olympics. all five son, their wives and children will join ann and mitt will join them for a week long get away. the week wraps up with a set of competitive games like running, biking and swimming, hence the name, the romney olympics. big time supporter chris christie seems to be telling it like it is as a competitive sport of his own. listen to what he said to a reporter this weekend who wanted to ask a question about something besides what he wanted to talk about. >> did i stay on topic. are you stupid? on topic. next question. good. thank you. i'm sorry for the idiot over there. take

have a list of all the states that are at various stages of stricter voter i.d. laws. the texas law is in a federal court now. south carolina has been blocked by the justice department. do you think it's going to be easier for states to do exactly what florida did and then sort of make this their way of getting around some of these challenges? >> well, we are worried about a snowball effect. at the end of the day we have to put this in context. all of these states that have taken up these laws that are going to make it harder to register and harder to vote are states that are really doing this for partisan gain, and at the end of the day we should have a country that makes it easier to vote, easier to register so that we get more turnout and more participation, but these states are really stacking the deck so that they can win, that the republican party really has been engaged in this kind of process for decades, and now we're seeing it coming and it's coming with a vengeance, and americans really should be vigilant about our right to vote. >> judith browne dianis, good to see you.
